How Can I Straighten my Teeth

Over three quarters of the population are not happy about their smile. It may be because their teeth are discoloured, gappy, chipped or crooked. Not many people are aware that simple cost effective treatments such as clear braces, teeth bonding, teeth whitening and porcelain veneers can give them a smile they can be proud of.

Six 4Some people with non-aligned front teeth that are visible when we smile face a conundrum with regular braces. They would much rather have a beautiful smile, but the idea of wearing metal braces for years as an orthodontist corrects their bite is even less appealing than the thought of living with the smile they already have.

Nowadays there are many alternatives to traditional orthodontics if you just want cosmetic enhancements. And what’s more the braces are quicker and invisible! At Perfect Smile Spa in Essex we use 3 types of clear braces:

The Inman Aligner.

This is clear removable brace that uses springs to straighten teeth. The Inman aligner is only good for correcting the front 4 teeth, it doesn’t straighten back teeth. It’s very fast and can straighten mildly crooked teeth in weeks!

Smilelign or Clear Aligners

These invisible removable braces are the most comfortable and invisible. They can straighten more severely crooked or gappy teeth in a few months.

Six month smiles fixed braces

This American tooth coloured fixed brace is an excellent option if you want a fixed brace. It’s easy to get on with, pretty invisible and very efficient at straightening most types of cases.

Unlike metal braces with silver brackets and wires, Six Month Smiles uses teeth coloured fasteners and wires. In other words, they are barely visible. That means that adults do not have to endure the stigma of being the grown-up version of ”brace face”. Average time for treatment is 3- 6 months.

Do I have to have teeth taken out?

Ninety five percent of the time – NO!

Only very rarely we take teeth out.

The fact that the above braces only require around six months always leads to the question, then why can’t they do the same with ordinary braces?

The reason is Cosmetic braces (ones above) and traditional orthodontic braces are means of achieving two different goals. Traditional braces are meant to fix someone’s bite. Yes, they also straighten teeth, but that’s not the primary objective traditional braces.

Cosmetic braces designed to straighten only the teeth that are visible when a person smiles and don’t get too involved with changing the bite. So this is a lot quicker.

Straignt Teeth

When people come to understand that the Cosmetic Braces Program can fix a smile without a mouthful of ugly metal and it can do so quickly and they understand how a smile can be fixed so quickly, they inevitably think, OK, but my teeth are extremely crooked and I have big spaces all over. Surely this procedure can’t help me. Yes, it can.

That’s what is so great about theses brace systems. It is designed for almost everyone. It works no matter how misaligned your teeth are. Do not make the mistake of thinking that your smile is just too misaligned, that your teeth are too crooked or that the spaces between your teeth are gaps that are just too wide to eliminate.

Can my teeth move back?

After your teeth are straightened we will make retainers fixed (wire bonded on back of teeth) and removable (clear plastic) that will keep your teeth in the new position. If you don’t wear retainers your teeth will move back!

Alternative treatments

So what are the options if you don’t want any braces at all!

You could have cosmetic bonding, a special tooth coloured resin is bonding to your teeth to hide undesirable features such as gappy teeth. Another more permanent alternative is Porcelain veneers; these are porcelain laminates that are bonded to the front surface any healthy undesirable teeth so they hide all the flaws and give you a perfect smile.

  1. Thanks for sharing all of these different teeth straightening procedures! I think it is so cool that there are so many types of removable braces so that you don’t have to worry about eating chewy foods or candy. In fact, I think that the clear aligners would be something my son would love– he doesn’t want to change his eating habits for two whole years!

  2. It is so helpful to learn more about these ways to straighten teeth. A few of my front teeth are not straight anymore, and I would love to be able to fix that. However, I really want to use one of these alternate ways, because I think a clear orthodontic solution would look a lot better. I really like the sound of the inman aligner. Since it works especially fast for only slightly crooked teeth, I think it would be a great option for me. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I have always had crooked teeth. From the time I was a young girl until now, my teeth have always overlapped, and the older I get, the more embarrassed I am of it. That being said, you talk about how fixed braces could be a really great option because they are easy, pretty invisible, and efficient at straightening most types of cases. All of that being said, though, I think what catches my attention the most is that they only take about six months to straighten up your teeth. Since I am older, braces can often times be an embarrassing thing to have, so having the option of only having them on for a few months is really appealing. Thank you for sharing!

  4. Tips on how to straighten teeth are what I should look at. For me, it gets me quite nervous to show off my teeth. It seems like my only option would be to talk to a cosmetic dentist about braces and seeing if this would be wise to do.

  5. I had braces when I was a teenager. So, my teeth are pretty straight. However, I no longer have my retainer and have noticed gaps starting to grow between my teeth. I think the clear aligners would be best for me, and I imagine that I could keep them to use as new braces, correct? I just wanted to know how long the final set of aligners should last as retainers?

  6. I have very properly aligned teeth.In a trauma some teeth were broken and the alignment look crowded.at the time of trauma doctor suggested to opt surgery as total teeth were miscrowded. After recovery from trauma went to Perfect Smile Spa Dentist after diagnosing he suggested veneers.I opted veneers in Perfect Smiel Spa.Now my look is as natural as previous trauma.#PorcelainVeneers
